These reports summarize data on subscription to voice telephone services as collected by FCC Form 477 twice a year.  The reports include data on connections served by incumbent local exchange carriers (ILECs), competitive local exchange carriers (CLECs), mobile wireless providers, and - as of December 2008 - interconnected Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) service providers.  The data in the 1998 and 1999 releases are from voluntary survey and other data.

In conjunction with each report listed below, as well as with the Internet Access Services Reports, the FCC has released additional Form 477 data.
